Flow Icing Cookies

I made these cookies for a bridal shower.  This is my first attempt at the flow icing technique.  Basically, you make royal icing in two consistencies, using the thicker icing (it acts like a dam) to outline the cookies, then filling in the center with the thinner icing.  I also used the thicker icing to write on the cookies once the thinner icing had dried. I like how it dries hard so you can stack the cookies, and it looks nicer than regular frosting.  You can do all sorts of designs while the thin frosting is still wet.  I want to experiment more with this because it was pretty fun, and the possibilities are endless.  I got the icing recipe from this website:
